1. Raw Materials
Ο γλυκάνισος, το οινόπνευμα, τα μπαχαρικά & τα βότανα μαζί με το νερό είναι εκείνα που επιλέγονται να είναι πρώτης ποιότητας για να αποτελέσουν και τη βάση της πετυχημένης συνταγής του ούζου Lesvion.
In order to produce the ouzo of highest quality that will cater for the taste of the most discerning customers, the distillate should “rest” for two months, so as to bring out its aroma and give it its full taste.
The whole process of distillation is done in a traditional copper cauldron (ambika), where through continuous controls and tests, Ouzo Lesvion is masterfully prepared.
Finally, observing all the rules of hygiene, the ouzo with 100% distillation, is filtered in a special type of stainless steel filter and is standardized in a high-capacity automatic labeling stamping machine, ready to begin its journey on the market.
Ouzo Lesvion. Made with passion, aromatic, and light, it is the absolute "must" for our summer excursions in taverns of the island accompanied by seafood delicacies.
Ouzo Lesvion has brought back beautiful memories from the ouzo we once enjoyed and made us love it even more!
Very refreshing ouzo that sets our mood every time we choose it, made us love ouzo even if we did not drink it before.
Giannis Linos with great experience in distillation that is passed down from generation to generation makes us love "his" Ouzo Lesvion that has now become "ours"! With his knowledge and passion, he inspires you and you do not want to go anywhere else! The wonderful taste and the sought-after packaging make Ouzo Lesvion unique both to enjoy by the sea and to give to your friends. Giannis, thank you for turning the tradition into... enjoyment!
It is not quite possible to pass by a place without tasting the local traditional products. If you are looking for a special gift for friends, Ouzo Lesvion from Ioannis Linos's distillery is a great choice. Their new distillery in Kara Tepe is a jewel and passing outside the smell of spirits challenges you to go inside to taste and buy it. The people are hospitable, with knowledge from the old days in the art of Ouzo and a traditional recipe that has not changed over time.
